Formulaic, Angst-Infused Mess
20 February 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Just saw the screener for Before I Fall. Buckle up, because it was a bumpy ride worse than I expected from Groundhog Day on teen. Before I Fall attempts to (re)tell the story of a girl trapped in the same day, desperately trying to find a means to become unstuck in time. First off, it takes every teenage movie trope and throws it at you in the plot equivalent of word salad. There's the childhood guy friend the lead should be dating but treats like dirt (until she doesn't because omg love was right there in front of her), the outcast art student with hair in her face and proverbial paint on her overalls, and the clique headed by the evil blonde who was once nice and is now an unrepentant post-pubescent monster who will (spoilers) never get her just desserts. Add to that a drilled in, overarching theme of the collateral damage dealt in choosing popularity over decency, and you have 'Fall' in a nutshell. Oh, and of course there's the whole matter of the day constantly resetting, much to the plucky heroine's consternation, a device whose means of activation is fairly obvious less than halfway through to just about everyone but the protagonist. This aspect of the film runs through all the expected options: the confused, it didn't happen day, the I can fix everything by avoiding trouble day, and the anything goes day, the last of which plays for the most, if potentially only, watchable part of this mess. Throughout these tribulations, the lead offers the occasional lofty and detached commentary, a mechanism that neither adds to the production's tone, nor preserves the attempted surprise twist at its conclusion. In terms of said end, it may just be the best part of the whole affair in that it means the angsty redux that is 'Fall' is finally at an end. Beyond that, the denouement feels rushed and its resolutions span from trivial to out and out ridiculous, ultimately succeeding in miring itself in drama and tragedy that defies previously presented conventions, reality, factual mental health statistics, and good taste. Thankfully, after an hour and a half, I became unstuck and could move on with my life. Before I Fall gets 1/2 stars, over and over and over again. Or, 1 disappointed Bill Murray (ya know, if he cared)
